The police in Mpumalanga have finally arrested three men in connection with the shooting death of well-known actress, Thandeka Mdeliswa.
The 34-year-old, who portrayed the role of Khanye Hlophe in the TV soapie, Ikani, was shot outside her Evander home last Thursday.
Explaining the shooting death of the actress, police spokesperson Brigadier Leonard Hlathi said they had been informed that Mdeliswa had heard a squabble between her brother and two men.
“She then went out to investigate the problem, whereupon getting closer, one of the men snatched a firearm from his friend and shot her,” said Hlathi.
He said that the two men then fled the scene. Police and medical personnel were immediately summoned and Mdleliswa was taken to hospital, but unfortunately died on Saturday, 5 September.
The suspects fled, including the triggerman. The police launched a manhunt which culminated in their arrest yesterday.
The three suspects, aged 24, 27 and 29, will face charges of murder and unlawful possession of a firearm. Lt Gen Mondli Zuma, the provincial police commissioner of Mpumalanga, lauded officials for the swift arrests.
“We are glad that the suspects have been arrested, including the alleged murderer.
“We also believe that at least the arrest will bring comfort to the family as they will be able to find closure on the matter.
“It is my pleasure to also commend the good work done by both teams in the apprehension of the suspects,” said Zuma. The three will appear in the Evander Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
“We also believe that at least the arrest will bring comfort to the family, as they will be able to find closure on the matter,” Zuma added.
